Albert Powell Continuation

Summary:

Albert Powell Continuation is a public high school serving grades 10-12 in Yuba City, California, with a relatively small student population of 167 students. The school faces significant academic and socioeconomic challenges compared to the surrounding high schools in the Yuba City Unified district.

Albert Powell Continuation consistently ranks in the bottom 20-25% of California high schools based on the SchoolDigger statewide ranking, with low academic performance on standardized tests. In 2022-2023, only 27.78% of 11th graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 55.37% for the Yuba City Unified district and 55.41% for the state. In math, the proficiency rate was just 1.39% for 11th graders, compared to 18.77% for the district and 27.36% for the state. The school also struggles with high dropout rates, ranging from 9.9% to 24.4% over the past few years, and a very high chronic absenteeism rate of 69.6% in 2022-2023.

Despite these challenges, Albert Powell Continuation has a more diverse student population compared to the nearby Yuba City High and River Valley High schools, with 65.87% Hispanic, 18.56% White, and 4.19% African American students. The school's smaller size, with only 167 students, may also present unique opportunities for tailored approaches to address the specific needs of its learners. However, the academic performance and other key metrics at Albert Powell Continuation are in stark contrast with the nearby high schools, which have higher test scores, graduation rates, and lower chronic absenteeism.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
